I wanted to take a minute and remind everyone that most of all accidents are due to rushing and complacency. But there are some easy things you can do to prevent most of them even in the midst of the long days we are experiencing right now.
Stop and take a break now and again to refresh. Eating regularly and staying hydrated is a must. Keep your eyes moving all around and look for things that could go wrong so that you are prepared. Not only will it help keep you safe it will also protect your equipment. Taking a few extra minutes to rest, review, and refresh will help you to be able to continue throughout the day safely.
Also keep in mind that our children use combines, grain truck, wagons, and grain bins as play equipment. Be sure to keep an eye out for them every time you are getting in and out of your equipment.
